Cherry Red Interviews: Edward Barton Cherry Red Interviews

    • Music

Edward Barton is a musician and artist who gained attention with his song It's A Fine Day, recorded with Jane Lancaster for Cherry Red in 1983. The song was successfully covered by Opus III and the tune has been used by Kylie Minogue (for her 1994 hit Confide In Me), Orbital and more.
Edward’s career began in poetry, with appearances on TV show The Tube, and his work in the arts led him to direct the video for James’ smash hit Sit Down, as well as contribute lyrics to albums by 808 State and Lost Witness, who he also wrote a trio of hit singles for. Edward is full of stories about his truly eccentric career - from hanging out (unknowingly) with Nico to his love of Egyptian pop music and being asked to mime at his school Christmas carol service, and much more. In this in-depth interview Edward talks about his work, but also gives us an insight into his life and how his creative spark manifests through his music and poetry. You can watch the full interview with video through Cherry Red on YouTube.
